Can you train for a marathon in one month?

I am 26 years old, 6'3" 183lbs. I have been active and athletic my entire life, but not as much lately as I was when I was younger.
Anyway, I want to run a marathon on June 3rd, but am completely out of shape. I am not looking to qualify for the Boston Marathon or anything, but I at least want to finish the race in a reasonable time (< 5 hours). Walking would be ok, my main goal here is to finish the race and not injure myself.
Is this unreasonable? Any training tips?
